Information notice pursuant to article 13 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679

 

We would like to inform you that, under articles 13 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, also known as the “General Data Protection Regulation” (“GDPR”), on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, such information and data as you may provide, or as we may collect, within such services as delivered by TEHMA SA will be processed in accordance with the above provisions and with the confidentiality obligations that inspire our business.

 

‘Processing’ means any operation or set of operations performed on personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, storage, consultation, elaboration, alteration, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blockage, disclosure by transmission, dissemination, erasure or destruction of data, even if not recorded in a data base.

 

This information notice is aimed at making known – in full transparency – the purposes we could use your data for, how we will handle them, who they could be disclosed to, where they could be transferred (inside or outside the EU) and what rights you have.

 

WHO WILL PROCESS YOUR DATA?

Your data will be processed by TEHMA SA as Data Controller.
In addition to TEHMA SA, we hereby inform you that there are some External Data Processors, which have been duly mapped, registered, contracted and appointed by TEHMA SA on the basis of the provisions contained in art. 28 of the GDPR. The list of External Data Processors is available at the headquarters of TEHMA SA.

TEHMA SA will process your data:
based on your consent;
1. because it is necessary to fulfil such contractual obligations as referred to in point 1 above;

3. because data processing is necessary to pursue a legitimate interest

 

Therefore, the provision of Personal Data is mandatory for such purposes as referred to above.
Failure to provide the data will make it impossible to achieve the above purposes, and thus to execute the contractual relationship.
The extent and suitability of the data thus provided will be assessed from time to time, in order to determine the resulting decisions and avoid processing data exceeding the purposes being pursued.
TEHMA SA undertakes not to use your personal data for any purpose other than those described in this information notice, unless we inform you in advance, and, where necessary, obtain your consent.
